Following the success of our inaugural 2018 Retina forum in Vienna, we are pleased to announce our 2019 forum will be in Paris on Wednesday 04 September, a week before our European forum.
While retinal diseases have been highlighted in each of our prior Ophthalmology Futures Forums, the tremendous innovation and investment in this arena has led our team to develop a second standalone meeting dedicated to the posterior segment of the eye.
Ophthalmology Futures Forums are clinician-driven innovation meetings focusing on new technology, entrepreneurial ventures, market access and other aspects of commercialisation in the ophthalmic healthcare sector. They cover all aspects of global innovation in ophthalmic devices, diagnostics and pharmaceuticals by connecting scientists, physicians, regulators, reimbursement specialists, corporate leaders, venture capitalists and other investors who support the advancement of eye care. With the global ophthalmology device market projected to reach USD 58.05 billion by 2021, this is a growth industry.

This years European forum will take place at the Pavillon d’Armenonville in Paris, just a few minutes from Porte Maillot and the Champs-Elysées.
About Pavillon d’Armenonville
In the seventeenth century, the king wanted to extend his hunting land at Rambouillet. He offered an exchange to Fleuriau, the last Seigneur of Armenonville, who was responsible for the royal hunt. The latter built a hunting lodge (Pavillon de chasse) on his new land and gave it his own name. This was demolished in the nineteenth century and rebuilt by a certain Davioud as a restaurant for the riders and carriage drivers who frequented Bois de Boulogne.
Its refined architecture has been preserved and modernised by the installation of technical equipment perfectly suited for events like our European forum.
